Delegate Bill Frick Endorses Kathleen Matthews
Today, Maryland State Delegate Bill Frick announced his support of Kathleen Matthews for Congress in Maryland’s 8th Congressional District, joining a list of Maryland endorsements including Comptroller Peter Franchot, former Lt. Governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, and former Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan. Delegate Frick represents the 16th Legislative District, home to tens of thousands of 8th Congressional District Voters.
“The 8th Congressional District has been incredibly well represented by Chris Van Hollen. I believe Kathleen Matthews is the right woman to carry on Chris’s legacy of effective, progressive leadership,” said Delegate Bill Frick. “Kathleen has been an integral part of our community for decades, as a neighbor and as a civic leader who worked to give a voice to working women. As a member of Congress, Kathleen Matthews will be a tremendous spokesperson for Democratic values and a pragmatic advocate for working families and the middle class. I know that she will be a fantastic Representative for the more than 75,000 Legislative District 16 voters who live in the 8th Congressional District.”
“I’m proud to have the support of a respected veteran elected official like Delegate Bill Frick. He shares my belief that we need more pragmatic thoughtful progressives in Congress who are willing to work across the aisle to get things done,” said Kathleen Matthews.
